I stayed with my two young children during a two day trip to Alton Towers, which is only a couple of minutes away. Everyone at the Laurels was friendly, helpful and polite - everything one could hope for in a B&B. The full English breakfast was excellent. The rooms were well equipped (fresh milk for tea/coffee is offered without having... More

We enjoyed a lovely stay at The Laurels as part of a long weekend away. We were upgraded to a better room at no extra cost owing to it being a quiet time of year. The room had been recently decorated and was in excellent condition. Breakfast was really nice and plenty of choice, with lots of extra tea and... More

Thanks for your review. As we were very quiet when you visited it was nice to be able to put you in our Superior Double room. We've manage to attract a large number of birds outside our Breakfast Room, which was a suggestion made by one of our previous guests. Great to hear you enjoyed our breakfast too :-) Regards...

Great Bed and Breakfast. Clean, fresh rooms, warm, friendly, knowledgeable host and a plentiful English breakfast in the morning. Add a lovely location and for an overnight B and B it's good value and spot on!

Myself and four friends stayed here early November for Scarefest at Alton Towers, the hotel is just 5 minutes drive away.

Sorry it took so long to reply to your review, but we've been spending a lot of time refurbishing parts of The Laurels so we've been extra busy! We don't normally accommodate parties of 5 in one room, but in your case we were able to move things around a bit to make sure you were all comfortable. Hopefully we'll... More
